"Music causes us to think eloquently." (Ralph Waldo Emerson)
"Beauty rests on necessities." (Ralph Waldo Emerson)
"In every work of genius we recognize our own rejected thoughts; they come back to us with a certain alienated majesty." (Ralph Waldo Emerson)
Listening to this album, there are loads of rejected thoughts coming towards me as I have never ever made an album so beautiful, so intense and full of feelings and/or energy. Field recordings and found sounds blend with Ambient music so beautiful it will make your eyes fill with water. Sit down with a cup of tea, relax, put on your headphones and enjoy this gem of an album!
As the title suggests beauty is the controverse topic of the second album by Harnes Kretzer. Transient and fragile as beauty may be the smooth ambient sounds are constantly underlayed by repeating fragments of irritating melodies. No sound seems to be perfect in itself. Continuously interrupted the sound fragments grow together to an easily injured universe. The open mind plunges into titles like ‘sunrise’ or ‘sea urchins’ and sinks into a ocean of beauty with sidekicks to its imperfection.
